When many people think of group travel tours, they think of a stuffy experience and being drug from event to event based on someone else’s itinerary, but that’s not the case anymore. Group tours have changed, and even for the adventurous traveler who likes to get off the beaten path, group tours can offer a lot of benefits. Here are just a few of the reasons these tours are a more fun way to see the world.

Save Time Planning

Planning a trip can be fun, but it’s also time consuming. With group travel tours, you don’t have to worry about spending weeks or months planning your trip. The tour company handles all that for you. You can just relax and pack for your next big adventure.

Ensure You Don’t Miss Anything

Unless you’re an expert in the history, culture, and ecosystem of an area, it’s easy to overlook things when planning a trip. Many people travel halfway around the world and then forget to see some of the most important sites. Group tours are planned by experts who know the best parts of every area. They ensure that you don’t miss any essentials.

Easier to Try New Experiences

In a lot of cases, when you travel on your own, you can’t do everything. It’s hard to set up a lot of solo experiences, but on group travel tours, the tour operator plans activities for the whole group. For instance, on the African Bush and Beach tour, travelers stay at the Manyatta Rock Camp in South Africa, and then, they go on wildlife safaris through Kruger National Park then fly to Mozambique for a five day marine safari. While it can be possible to plan events like that on your own, it’s easier to manage these experiences with a group. It also tends to be more affordable.

Safety in Numbers

Traveling alone carries a lot of risks, and when you’re with a group of travelers, you get to enjoy safety in numbers along with national licensed tour guides. Whether you are traveling on a train into Machu Piccu, facing giant polar bears in Churchill, Canada, or exploring a remote area of the Amazon, being with other people makes the experience safer. The group has your back.

Built-in Camaraderie

That said, safety is a small part of why many people love group travel tours. Many people embark on these adventures because of the built-in camaraderie. When you set off with a group, you have a like-minded selection of people who are interested in the same part of the world as you. As you see new sites and share experiences, you can talk about the journey and learn new things together. Many people make lifelong friends and future travel partners on these trips.

Less Stress

Finally, for all the reasons listed above and many others, traveling with a group is less stressful than traveling on your own. You don’t have to book individual rooms, tours, and experiences. You simply choose your destination and let the tour company take care of the rest for you. Whether you want to attend a Hawaiian luau, explore volcanos, or hike through rainforests in three Hawaiian islands, you don’t have to stress about it. Someone books the experience, and being with a group helps to ensure your fun and safety.

Are You Looking For Something More Than The Average Solo Groups?

Never underestimate the mysterious beauty of India. Everyone knows of the wonders of Delhi and the strange, romantic Taj Mahal. In truth, they are “must see’s—destinations you see on a postcard, or browsing a ‘top ten places to go in india’ list. But after you witness India’s greatest hits the question remains—where do you go from there? It’s almost hard to imagine the amazing experiences that await in any direction. I like to say India a bombardment of sights, sounds, taste, and smell. It is a place that can all at once overwhelm your senses and also a place that can bring you peace.

Do you dare venture beyond the cookie cutter India trips? The solo groups where you see the safe highlights without wonderment or inspiration? Or do you travel with Suzy and Adventures For Singles a solo groups that with absolute certainty will go beyond your wildest expectations. The vibrant colors of the people and the country will leave a permanent mark in your soul.

The trip “Punjabi Boys & the Dalai Lama” offered by Adventures for Singles gives the solo traveler that rare opportunity to see an India that many only read about. Yes, you get your dose of Delhi and the Taj, but you also get immersed in those cultural experiences which set India apart from any other country.

Let Our Solo Groups to India Take You Away From The Norm

“Coddiwomple” means to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination. A solo trip for the soul, so to speak.  I’ll be coddiwompling my way to regions unknown to me. Intentionally, I Googled nothing and reviewed no maps. This would dilute my joy of discovery. I revel in the element of surprise to confirm the axiom, “tourists don’t know where they’ve been and travelers don’t know they’re going.”

Born with genetic wanderlust, I have an insatiable curiosity to explore the globe and seek the exotic places to reboot my passion for travel. Third World journeys always give me a story to tell. I can never become a story teller sipping umbrella drinks on a cruise ship. Bring it on! Places that speak no English, broken infrastructure, no electricity (I have a butane hair curler) and funky toilets delight me. There’s always challenges to get one’s adventure on. For me, an ordeal is preferable to a pampered vacation. Not everyone understands this, but it’s not their journey to make sense of.
